We require two letters of recommendation. We suggest you request recommendations from persons who have been directly responsible for assessing your academic performance and/or professional experience. Examples might include faculty members who can speak of your achievements and accomplishments, a previous manager or internship supervisor, or someone with whom you have worked in a volunteer capacity through a student club or organization.
The recommendation forms are completed online by your recommenders. It is important that recommendations provide details and/or examples to support opinions about an applicant. For example, the statement "Julie is a great student" does not provide as much insight as a concrete example of how well Julie performed in-class assignments and outside of class when faced with certain responsibilities and challenges. Recommendations that state strong feelings (either positive or negative) without examples are not helpful.
